my husband and I are going to begin building our house in the spring and are having the dilemma to either use the log siding with the false log corners or go with the real thing? I would really like to use actual logs but I am afraid that we may have insect problems and rotten logs down the road. What do you suggest?

You are going to have almost the exact same issues with siding as you would with real logs. The issue of rot and bugs is more easily dealt with, but the maintenance is identical on siding versus real logs. Plan on budgeting $1 per square foot of living space / per year for maintenance.
